I'm new with these tech forums, so I hope this is the correct section for this.  I've recently gotten into networking my 2 home pcs.  I've got an 80 gb hard drive that has about 35 gb of "original" files on it.  My problem is that I've basically got the same huge "my music" file under the "all users", "jason", etc., with all copies being under the "blanket" c: drive, therefore, I'm almost at capacity.  How do I correct these extra files?  Thank you.

I don't quite understand what you mean when you say "all the copies". Could you be a bit more specific.

If you are the only person using that computer, then you can delete one of them, e.g. the one under the All Users folder, then set the share for the folder under Jason to Share this folder with the other PC, if you want to.

The All Users folder is a shared folder for all users on that PC, so everyone with his own login name and password. If there is no one else but you, the extra folder is redundant.

Sure, thanks for the reply.  
1) When opening "my computer", "The Elliott's Dsktp's Documents" folder is showing as shared here.  This folder has all of my files here.
2) When moving into the c: drive from "my computer", I then go into the "Documents and Settings" folder, then I have the "Jason" and "All Users" folders, neither are shown as being shared  The "Jason" folder contains a shared "My Documents" folder that looks exactly the same as the folder in #1 above.  
It looks like I've got 3-4 different folders with the exact same info. in them, some are shared and some are not.  I simply want to be able to share the entire contents of the "my documents" folder on either of my pcs, but I don't want duplicate copies of the folder taking up all of my hd space.  Thanks for your help.

Like Jee said if the other folders aren't wanted then just delete them so you only have the one you want, then share that and everything should be ok.
